Hi,

I have a 7 year old Husky. Sometimes when he runs, he would stop short, turn his head and go for the base of his tail. Sometimes he would even sit down mid trot and do the same thing. This doesn't happen every time he runs, but recently whenever it happens he yelps in pain.

He is fine right after and keeps going. Pressure or contact with the area does not cause any additional pain and I can't understand what is causing it.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks!

Hi spotted nikes,

Thanks for your reply. In fact he recently had a ruptured anal gland and he's been to the vet where they cleaned the area, expressed the remainder of the fluid and put him on meds. So I'm still applying an ointment and giving him antibiotics and its healing nicely. I suppose I'll wait a little while and see how he is in a few weeks.

Thanks again!
